Dr. Rinke’s main interests are genomics, ecology, and phylogeny of uncultured microbes. He applies single-cell genomics, the separation and sequencing of single bacterial and archaeal cells, and metagenomics, the direct sequencing of environmental samples. Both methods are perfectly suited to explore uncultured microbes, also know as microbial dark matter.

Archaeal Dark Matter and the Origin of Eukaryotes

This project aims to investigate the highly controversial origin of eukaryotes and thus all multicellular life within Archaea, a domain of single-celled microorganisms.

Tree of Life

Taxonomic classification of living organisms and understanding their ancestry is the basis of all biology.
